    We just booked our first trip to Disney World and we are staying at the Port Orleans French Quarter. I have been told my child should also get a Magic Band, but I am not being given that option on the website? Does she need to have one?

    Hi Kerri!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so glad that you stopped by with your question.

    I bet you're getting excited about your FIRST trip to Walt Disney World Resort. I just know you're going to have a wonderful time, and I think you'll really enjoy staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. With your MagicBand, you will be able to unlock your hotel room door, enter the parks and FastPass+ attractions and so much more. Everyone listed on your resort reservation should be able to order and customize a MagicBand including your little one. If your child is under the age of three, then she will not need a MagicBand for park admission or for FastPass+ admission, but she definitely can still get one of her own. So if for some reason you're still not seeing her listed when you log in to your My Disney Experience account and select My MagicBands and Cards, then you probably will need to call for some assistance. There is a dedicated number for My Disney Experience, MagicBands and FastPass+ questions and a friendly Cast Member should be able to assist you and hopefully resolve your issue.

    I hope this helps to answer your question and please let us know if we can help with anything else. Have a magical vacation!
